Perfume

Additional Links

A special perfume was made to burn as incense in the tabernacle. It was compounded of stacte, onycha, galbanum, and frankincense, an equal weight of each: it was most holy. No one was allowed to compound the same for themselves, or they would be cut off from God's people. It was typical of the excellencies of Christ which were as sweet incense to God. Exodus 30:34,38 . Perfumes are supposed to be more needful in hot countries. Song of Solomon 3:6 . In Proverbs 27:9 it is said, "Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart;" but it may also be employed as a mere matter of luxury or of sin when the heart is away from God. Proverbs 7:17; Isaiah 57:9 .
